2 In Christ alone my hope is found; He is my light, my strength, my song;This cornerstone, this solid ground,Firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
3 My comforter, my all in all— Here in the love of Christ I stand. What heights of love,what depths of peace,When fears are stilled,when strivings cease!My comforter, my all in all—Here in the love of Christ I stand.
4 In Christ alone, Who took on flesh, Fullness of God in helpless babe! This gift of love and righteousness,Scorned by the ones He came to save.
5 Till on that cross as Jesus died, The wrath of God was satisfied; For ev'ry sin on Him was laid—Here in the death of Christ I live.
6 There in the ground His body lay, Light of the world by darkness slain;Then bursting forth in glorious day,Up from the grave He rose again!
7 And as He stands in victory, Sin's curse has lost its grip on me; For I am His and He is mine—Bought with the precious blood of Christ.
8 No guilt in life, no fear in death— This is the pow'r of Christ in me; From life's first cry to final breath,Jesus commands my destiny.
9 No pow'r of hell, no scheme of man, Can ever pluck me from His hand; Till He returns or calls me home—Here in the pow'r of Christ I'll stand.
